The Album Collection: Honky Tonk Angel, Patty Loveless (1988)

I hope that you have been enjoying this look at some of my favorite albums of all time. Today, I want to take you back in time to an album that remains one of my all-time favorites not just for its’ quality – but what it represents. I am sure that if you look back at my school records, I was probably absent the maximum number of days per semester that you could get away with in Dickson County. Likewise, I am sure that I can tell you what I was doing during the majority of those days if I was home between the hours of 10am and 3pm. I had the radio turned on to WSM AM. Now, I guess it seems that those call letters have figured into many of these album features in one way or another, but this week it definitely has a key place in my background. More than any person, Keith Bilbrey was the reason I wanted to get into radio. I don’t really know why…

Jason Eady – AM Country Heaven

Music, they say, is often a soundtrack to our lives. That is very much true. A song can take you back in time to a particular point, when life was a little bit simpler, or just different.

This one took me back a ways, to the music that played on the airwaves on those Saturday mornings in the late 1970s or early 1980s, where I would go with my father to the local Dickson Farmers’ Co-Op. I say that because of the music that was on the radio at the time – some of Haggard’s best…

Various Artists – Hank Williams: The Lost Notebooks

If anyone other than Bob Dylan had been spearheading this project, there probably would have been a ton of criticism levied against it. How can you imagine finishing a painting started by Da Vinci? When you look at it that way, I have to even admit that it doesn’t make a lot of sense. However, somehow it all comes together for the better on this disc. Comprised of compositions started but never finished by Hank Williams in the same Cadillac that he entered into eternity, the lyrics were headed to the dumpster when someone…

Miranda Lambert – Four The Record

Miranda Lambert. You know her. That sultry, fiery vixen. You know, the woman who carries her gunpowder and her lead. Well, you might think you do know her, but not all is what is appears to be on her fourth disc. Yes, there are several songs that showcase her wilder side, such as the sexy “Fastest Girl In Town” and the very much Texas-ish sound of “Same Old You,” but there are also a few reminders of the woman who stunned many with the plaintive “The House That Built Me.” She showcases her vulnerable…
